Does playing video from USB require coding?

Last night I tried playing an MP4 video placed on my USB HDD. I can see the video listed in idrive but when I try to play it nothing happens. I am bit confused because I have read that some people can play videos without any coding while others have had to code the following:

HU_NBT > 3003 > API_USB_VIDEO > both
HU_NBT > 3000 > ENT_CODEC_XVID > aktiv
HU_NBT > 3000 > ENT_CODEC_VCD > aktiv
HU_NBT > 3000 > ENT_MC_VIDEO_SUPPORT > aktiv

I have confirmed that my car recognizes and indexes music from this same HDD so I know that is not the problem.

Any ideas? Do I have to code or am I just doing something wrong?

Renamed the file and now it works! Not sure why it works but it does!

For anyone else seeing this thread:

Yes, in general, you need to code this. It really seems to vary by build, but on my 2015 F31 with NBT the video playback options were all set to NICHT_AKTIV by default.
